The dog you’re about to meet once had no name. No real family, either. Whoever owned him kept him always chained up by the side of the house, his snout muzzled with a tight roll of duct tape.
He slept on the cold and hard concrete, ignored by the world. He barked, he pleaded for attention… but nothing changed. As time passed, the neighbors eventually noticed the heartbreaking sight next door. Day after day, there was the dog — alone, neglected and hopeless.
The neighbors grew more concerned and frustrated, but even their angry calls to the police did nothing. The dog remained outside. Finally, the neighbors had enough. When no one was home next door, they jumped the fence and saved this poor, nameless dog.
From that day on, his life would never be the same…
For no other reason than being a dog, this nameless senior dog was muzzled, tethered and treated like dirt.
Chained up, and all alone. Every single day.
Laying on the hard concrete.
He’d bark in an effort for attention, but nothing worked. Instead, he learned to mistrust humans and fend for his life.
While the neighbors started to take notice and make frantic phone calls, time passed and the dog grew older. Finally, one day at last, the neighbors had enough. They freed the dog themselves.
He was saved! Finally! And not only did he finally get a name, Alfie, but he found himself with the loving forever family he’d always wanted and needed. Here’s Dad.
The empty concrete slap was replaced with wide open spaces.
And toys! Lots and lots of toys!
No more chains, no more muzzle.
Even a canine sibling came with his new family, a pup who looked just like Alfie. Days were spent outside in the sun…
Family picnics with the whole gang…
Exciting adventures, swimming and playing…
…and of course, love and freedom. This is how Alfie lived out his final years. Happy at last.
I’m so glad Alfie was able to live out his remaining years the way he’d always wanted: loved.
